The Walmart NWA Championship brought LPGA pros to town. The event, sponsored by Procter & Gamble, allowed the pros to shared their skills with local kids. The first ever Junior Golf Clinic, sponsored by Mattel saw dozens of young golfers showed up for coaching and demonstrations. Some of the kids were from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton County and the Northwest Arkansas First Tee program. Pro Stacy Lewis and others provided tips on driving, putting and other golf skills. “The players are so generous with their time,” says Erica Zubriski, VP of Sales for Mattel. “It’s a fantastic event and, I think, very valuable for all the kids who are able to attend.” Arkansas Razorback Golf Coach Shauna Estes-Taylor also worked with the kids Thursday.
